. what happened if h si inside the obama administration about whether to to the fact he was working for the cia and how to get them out. what happened was initially the obama administration didn't have the pakistanis he was working for the cia. they said he was diplomat. president obama said he's a diplomat. it was only after weeks and weeks as the situation spiraled out of control increasingly, where one of the wives swallowed rat poison because she became a new martyr and was convinced raymond davis to be treated well. ultimately the obama administration went to the pakistani government and sabrina davis is with the cia. there's got to amount of the country. in march of 2011, he was ultimately released from prison after what was blood money was paid, where the guns that the families were paid over $2 million in a massive swipe away his charges and he was released to the united states and sent to an. the entire episode was a microcosm of how fraught u.s. tech any relations have become. >> what kind of work was he doing for the cia impact of and? >> he was doing a number of differen
-existing conditions are being told basically by the obama administration, sorry, we didn't plan for you. mr. gardner: and i understand the money republicans would propose to spend to address this -- mr. wrung: and i understand the money the republicans would spend on this issue, the obama administration wants to spend on advertising, advertising the exchanges, dvertising how the obamacare will work. >> this is the helping sick americans act. tomorrow we're going to defund the preventive care act, the slush fund in the affordable care act that has been going for everything from paths and bike paths and advertising campaigns and spaying and neutering dogs, instead we're going to move that money, defund it, pay down about $8 billion on the deficit and we're going to move money into these high-risk pools that are run by the states that are going to take care of sick americans. mrs. roby: and we look forward to that debate in the next two days. we are closing in on the end of our hour, we are just joined by mr. griffin, the gentleman from arkansas and as you know, we are talking about tonight, this is ht
in america's newsroom. martha: several republican lawmakers are now questioning the obama administration's decision not to treat the boston bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev as an enemy combatant. he will face a civilian trial in criminal court. civilian complaint is revealing details from the carjacking to the shootout in police. listen to this from the documents released yesterday. the man point ad firearm at the victim, the person who was carjacked, did you hear about the boston explosion? and i did that. the man removed the magazine from his gun and showed the vipg tim it had a bullet in it and reinstated the magazine and stated, i am serious. new york city mayor, rudy giuliani helped lead the nation out of 9/11 terror attacks and we i will be remembered for that going forward and rely on you for your expertise how you break down these things. a lot of people bush for enemy combatant status. the white house doesn't want to go there. is that a wise decision on their part. >> i don't think so. martha: why? >> the white house is a in state of denial and has been that way since major has
. >>> the battle over cyber spying could be heating up. the obama administration is considering taking aggressive action against china. it follows repeated warnings. bill plante is at the white house. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's mostly done by the military. but has become such a concern in recent months that president obama brought it up in a conversation with china's new president. they're considering ways to retaliate. officials say trade sanctions against china are among the things being considered. "the wall street journal" today reports other measures could include indictments of chinese nationals and even cyber attacks by the u.s. against the chinese hackers. there was a formal protest in china earlier this year and secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. and china have formed a group to work on the issue, but there's very deep skepticism about that since most of the chinese hacking is coming from the chinese military. anthony, norah? >> bill, thank you. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york ti
leaders addressing the obama administration's choice to furlough 15,000 air-traffic controllers saying it raises serious safety and operational issues my next guest says the faa's claims are a smokescreen and airlines travelling public have been needlessly targeted. joining us is michael boyd of belated group international. you follow the airlines, how are these controller furloughs impacting the industry? >> they keep going for several days they will impact the industry. think of it now as senator schumer says the bad blizzard but the blizzard will end some war will impact earnings, will impact revenues. ashley: so you say there's no reason for these cuts and it is purely an exercise by the obama administration to put pressure ultimately to raise taxes. >> absolutely. i saw jay carney pulling out a jive about when you have cuts this debate is 4% of the current budget which is up and today they have after sequestration $1 billion more than they had 5 years ago and 8% fewer flights to handle. they can't justify this in any of their way. ashley: let's talk about the airlines themselves.
their rights being read, then law enforcement may be able to do so. and when the obama administration announced it was going to use the public safety exception we said, well, you might be able to do that but recognize that it is limited and narrow. and, so now, i think that might have been invobed. we don't know. that is one of the things that we don't actually currently know now. how this has proceeded. and i think what's important here is not the defendant has counsel and has gone before a judge and so we look to the system to work, which means we expect prosecutors to proceed fairly and prove their case and defense lawyers to zealously perform their duty and we'll look to see what facts they find and what arguments they make going forward. >> host: cliff may, how different is the public safety exception that can be invoked in that first phase after a detention of a suspect? how is that different than looking at military or enemy combatant status? >> guest: the main difference would be as hina has correctly said the public safety exception is very narrow and limited in time. it is not exactly
pilots association. a lot of republicans have charged that the obama administration is actually trying to make this look worse, make sequestration look worse for the republicans and not taking steps to try and make this system better. ray lahood and company said, hey listen, you want us to save $400 million a year. we have to do it somehow. this is how we're doing it. take a look at airline stocks. today they're doing pretty good. i want to focus on southwest. it had a great year. so have all the airlines. they're up over 60% year-to-date. even if you look today the stocks are okay. but i'll tell you, if what they say is going to happen on sunday and monday here and going forward. those airline stocks are headed just the other way. if we have the kind of delays they're talking about, real quick before i get away, show the towers, if you have the pictures of the towers out here. what will this mean, these furloughs? there won't be enough controllers. o'hare will have to shut down one of its two air traffic control towers. that means fewer runways can operate and fewer flights can take o
had stagnant growth frankly throughout most of the obama administration and the leadership in the last five years. we need do better. >> host: why is it okay to spent billions of year on corporate entitlement who don't pay taxes. we pay for our entitlements wall street does not. >> guest: it's not okay. , i mean, frankly, we need to bring it in and change our tax code in a way that lowers rates for everybody and eliminate the big corporation. i do recognize, i think the caller -- the e-mail is correct. folks have paid in to social security and medicare deserve to receive those benefits. the problem is something is not done, then the programs over time have the risk of going away. >> host: on twitter wouldn't social security and medicare be in a better shape if wages were higher? >> guest: wouldn't social security and medicare be in better shape if wages were higher? yeah. that's right. one of the challenges we face is how do you get the growing economy going forward and that is up with of our big debate for the summer. republicans believe that we need modify our tax code and reduce rat
and the best example of this is the obama's administration war on coal. what is the impact of this great abundant natural resource? in 2012, coal was responsible for 37% of electricity generated in the united states, more than any other source of electricity. given current consumption rates, the united states has more than 200 and 30 years left remaining -- in coal reserves and responsible for 670,000 u.s. jobs. my home state, kentucky, has plused energy for centuries and most importantly we have produced coal. and our coal industry that has been built by the hard work of my fellow citizens of kentucky powers america. kentucky was the third largest coal-producing state and coal mining was the greatest source of energy production in the commonwealth. in 2011, coal mines employed more than 19,000 individuals through the year and mining directly contributed to approximately $4 billion to the commonwealth's economy. what has the war on coal brought to our country and to kentucky? domestic coal decreased by 4.6% just last year. in 2012 u.s. coal consumption for electric power declined by 11.5
disagree with the obama's administration decision to rule out enemy combatant suspect. >> reporter: labeling him as an enemy combatant would allow the government to question him without an attorney president and maybe get some of those answers. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> thanks, barbara. most of us can't even begin to imagine the incredibly tense moments that led up to the arrest of dzhokhar cztsarnaev. but that's what they are trained to do. the s.w.a.t team that took tsarnaev into custody describes the final moments to anderson cooper. let's listen. >> let's do it. let's do what we're trained to do. this is the suspect. we're trained to go in and apprehend him. you can see one hand is clear of any weapons each time he went the other way, his hand went down inside the boat out of our view. i know everybody here we've spoken about it. each time he did that, we had to assume he was reaching for either a weapon, a firearm or some explosive ignition device to kind of draw us in and take us out in a suicide type manner. he did that a couple of times as we're still approaching
? >> fundamental question, is this an international terrorism investigation, and did the obama administration know something about these two men back as far back as 2011. what we now know is that the fbi at the request of another country, no one is saying it's russia, at the request of another country looked into the activities of the older brother. there was concern that another country expressed about him. the fbi issuing a statement last night about all of that, and saying in part, and let me read it, "the request stated it was based on information that he, the older brother, was a follower of radical islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010, as he prepared to leave the united states for travel to the country's region to join unspecified underground groups." we don't know that this request to look into him came from russia, but now russian president vladimir putin today saying he wants some cooperation obviously with u.s. investigators. the u.s. intelligence community, the fbi, the cia now going back through everything they have, trying to see if there were, i
forces? we are giving them, most recently, the obama' administration they would give them 120 $3 million. the opposition clearly that they wanted far more than that. yet we are giving them armor and stuff like that. how can we defeat them when we are supplying them? at the same time, we have some issues like benghazi and the helicopter that had the hard crash landing in south korea this week and nobody has covered that at all. west, texas connected to the bombing in boston? and how much fertilizer was taken away before the explosion occurred? is anybody have any control over that? you may come i just don't see how we can defeat al qaeda and terrorism, homegrown or foreign- born, if we continue to put with free welfare without giving them any drug test or saying you have 30 days to 90 days to get off of welfare and get a job. we just need to bring back our moral values and ethics and start holding our politicians to to make them stand up there and do what they said they do, and not get away with fast and furious. host of issues,, some directly related and some not. yes: it is not uncommon
they want to. >> this is a matter of policy under the bush and especially the obama administration, connecting jihad holy war and islamists who embrace it and believe it is their god-directed obligation to engage in it with the attacks or terrorism we are supposed to be defending ourselves against has been impermissible. this is crazy and it has created, i think, vulnerabilities as has frankly the lessening of the engagement of the public in this war. you have been talking about it all morning the public helped enormously once those pictures wept up. it's very much the case that we need to have the public on the case all the time. it's kind of a question of are we on a war footing in the face of this jihadist threat. this global jihadist threat or aren't we? unless and until we are, i think we will wind up having a lot moornd worse of these kind of attacks. >> brian: do you believe there are other people involved with these two? >> there were other people involved certainly in providing, i suspect, freezing rain structure, training and support. we need to find them, too. >> brian:
of the obama administration, the single-worst president that we have ever had -- >> stephanie: oh dear. greg let me return the compliment that you are wrong about everything. but my point is i don't hate the bush administration. i hated the unnecessary war. did you like the war in iraq? >> caller: no, of course not. >> stephanie: okay. well, i don't hate george bush personally, i don't know him. i hated his policies. >> caller: do you believe that he lied about weapons of mass destruction. >> stephanie: yes, i do. >> caller: absolutely not. >> he may have believed it. but it wasn't true. [overlapping speakers] >> stephanie: all right. i can't handle this. [ overlapping speakers ] >> exactly. >> there were no weapons of mass destruction. >> instead they listened to a guy named curveball. >> there were no useful weapons of mass destruction in iraq at the time -- >> stephanie: i don't know about you, but i can't hear that argument enough, can you. [ mumbling ] >> cherry-picked information -- >> stephanie: yes, and twisted with lies. >> who is more trustworthy than a guy named cur
system of justice. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect. >> reporter: and the question of whether the fbi dropped the ball in 2011 when it looked at tamerlan tsarnaev's activity will be the subject of a closed-door briefing on capitol hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they mig
korea, the obama administration has thus far pursued a policy that some has referred to strategic patience. will e that kim jong-un return to the negotiating table and return to denuclearization. we're in a situation where the current dictator has surpassed even his tyrant father and grandfather in unpredictability and recklessness. in a joint subcommittee hearing last week, i think most of our members agreed that the policy of strategic patience, if you want to call it that, has been a failure. i will get the questions out and then you can respond. the second is with reference to burma. certainly we've witnessed dramatic changes in that nation in the past two years, but i think we all agree there may well be some bumps in the road ahead. we applaud the reforms instituted thus far and certainly we're happy to see an emerging new political process last spring by elections, but we're also witnessing an escalation of ethnic violence. the military remains one of the most powerful actors in the country, and instead of working to curtail ethnic violence, it's thought by many to actually
policies welcome back the agencies, not the united states congress. under the obama administration immigration ajonetses can no longer arrest those who violate the law. we'tt anndid who illegally overstays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing laws regarding fraudulent documents by illegal aliens. agents are forced to apply the dream act to adult inmates in jails releasing criminals back into the nation. criminals who have committed felonies, who have assaulted our officers and who pray on children. -- prey on children. i.c.e. officers are threatened with the loss of their job simply because they attempt to enforce the immigration laws and provide for public safety. since the gang of eight has chosen to ignore law enforcement officers, i have a question i have that i would like to ask them publicly. dick rubio, chuck schumer, durbin, john mccain, lindsay raham, jeff flake, michael bennett, as united states senators the representatives of the people, where have you been for the last four years? what have you done to prevent political appointeings at d.h.s. from ig
truman through ted kennedy right through the obama administration. it ensured if you had a pre-existing condition you could not be denied coverage. it ensured that every child in america had health coverage. it ensured if you became sick, that you could not become bankrupt. 2/3 of all bankruptcies in the united states were because of illness. so i was very proud of that vote. and i think that it is something modeled upon the massachusetts law, and i voted for obamacare. i believe that it's important. i believe it goes right to fundamental values in our state and in our contry. -- our country. i believe it is a right and not privilege to have access to health care. i voted yes on obamacare. steve voted no. >> mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> sure. that's one. let me just address that, that's probably not our biggest difference. the biggest difference between ed and i are really if you look at our records, and i go back, ed is a policy guy, and i'm a people guy. that's why i was explaining before that on all these fights with the bank bailout, ed was with the banks and i was with the pe
these agencies, not the united states congress. under the obama administration, immigration agents can no longer arrest those who violate u.s. immigration law. immigration agents cannot arrest an individual for entering the u.s. illegally. we cannot arrest someone who over stays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing laws regarding fraudulent documents and a dandy that by illegal aliens. agents are forced to apply the dream act, not to children in schools, but to adult inmates in jails. mmiething criminals back in nation, criminals who have insulted our officers, and who prey on children. at the same time, i.c.e. officers are punished and threatened by dhs and i.c.e. leadership, threatened with the loss of their jobs simply because they attempt to enforce the nation's immigration laws and provide for public safety. chosen togang 8 has ignore law enforcement officers, have a question i would like to ask them publicly. schumer, dickhuck durbin, john mccain, patrick leahy, lindsey graham, roark menendez, jeff blake, michael bennett's cut as united states senators, the representati
now? >> hi there, chris and john. obviously the key steps of the administration here is trying to figure out who and why. two questions that at this point are still very much unknown. as you mentioned, john, president obama received an update overnight from one of his homeland security advisers. we know that he will be briefed later this morning by that homeland security adviser, alissa monaco, as well as by the director of the fbi robert mueller and his other senior members of his team. he did find out about this initially around 3:00 p.m. eastern time yesterday. he took to the podium a little after 6:00 p.m., promising that the u.s. will respond. >> we still do not know who did this, or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but, make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any response -- any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice. >> the white house released a photo of president obama on the phone with the fbi direct
the advisory he was taught by the wars outside the war zone. early on the obama administration. and he said in contrast to the wars in iraq and afghanistan where the united states has used a hammer, he said we, the obama administration, can use a scalpel. it was an idea i had that scalpel certainly applied a sos free. surgery without obligations. but we see that's not the case in a lot of places. so i thought i would take his analogy and make it a nice because nice fights are a lot messier. >> host: steve, california, you're on with mark mazzetti from "the new york times." >> caller: this. the united states has not declared war in over 70 years. the wars we thought, korea, vietnam, iraq, afghanistan have all been basically unconstitutional. we seem to have given up any a semblance of pretending to declare war, congress seems to have no stomach to declaring war but obviously no problem fighting them. i'm wondering whether or not you think that the militarization of the cia, potential conflict between the different agencies and the defense department might in fact said whether that we return
